What Is Addiction?

The MIT Press

This chapter presents some encouraging empirical investigations on measuring dispositions to bundle choices, and considers a specific technical question regarding generating monetary choices for the purposes of investigating bundling. It concentrates on “real” experiments and empirical data that bear directly on bundling, and explores the evidence regarding the value of a series of rewards, precommittment, and precedent. The chapter indicates various ways in which addicts may differ from nonaddicts when George Ainslie’s proposal regarding how some of us resist temptation by bundling choices is approximately correct.

Keywords:   bundle choices, bundling, rewards, precommittment, precedent
